This dodecaphonic (12 tone) composition was made based on math rather than the academic theory for this kind of composition. The matrix was designed like a logic math puzzle not the standard rules.
Any purists out there ? :P

:OOOOO YAY good Job!!!! The twelve- tone matrix is a butt huh? any more questions or what not :) i am happy to help hehe its really simple once the matrix is done eh? SO PROUD OF YOU for a first try this is really good :) .

Glad you liked it.
I have to admit I didn't get the rules 100%, but once I understood the math behind it, it was less hard to nail it. Thanks for listening and also for your advice, it helped me understand the method.

Huh, it's tolerable. Who'd a-thought.
I guess it almost sounds melodic to me compared to works like Schoenberg's.
I'm curious about your formula. I think it's fascinating sometimes how math can shape the way notes are arranged. I remember I once tried to apply fractal geometry to a track using a software.
It's cool stuff

Thanks for listening man.
I kept notes at minimum on every line to avoid the inherent atonal mess dodecaphonic compositions tend to be. I did the matrix as some sort of "sudoku". I took a note as root and then assigned the grid random set of numbers from 1 to 11 (negative for horizontal, positive for vertical to get the inversions right) avoiding continuous values to calculate the amount of semitones on each interval. Math indeed can throw some interesting results on music. I'm not familiar with fractal math (just with the awesome figures it's graphic can show), I'm sure that sort of thing translated to music must be interesting.
I'm currently working on another math based track too. But this one is completely tonal, and it is based on ostinatos.
